I was streaming the world premiere of the biggest TV show of the twenty-first century yesterday. The whole world was watching at the same time, and it was pretty bloody epic. Like seriously, I could feel myself being a part of this massive milestone in TV history and I felt connected with the entire world. It was awesome. Until my TV fell off the wall because of incorrect TV wall mounting. In the Melbourne CBD, a lot of our architecture is pretty old and dangerous. I think that’s why the plaster completely disintegrated under my TV, causing it to fall off the wall right in the most crucial part of the episode.
I couldn’t believe it when it happened. Part of me thought that it was a special effect of the TV show, and then I realised that my TV had literally just fallen off the wall and smashed. I was beside myself. I didn’t get to see the end of the episode and as soon as I had come out of my shock and checked my phone, I saw spoilers that I can’t come back from. I’m actually devastated.
Today I’ve organised to get my wall repaired so that I can have my TV remounted as soon as possible. I’ll get a professional TV wall mounter to come in and do it, and whilst they’re doing that I’ll see if they can also do a residential CCTV installation so that I can have a little extra protection at home when I need it. I know that sounds random but if the contractors who come to my house to remount my TV can also do CCTV installation, then I may as well kill two birds with one stone. I live alone so I’ve been meaning to get this done for a while, but I just haven’t got around to it as of yet. I obviously need a TV to keep me entertained, so I’ll get both done at once.
